Shaun Dodds Balhousie St Ronan's with first prize giveaway

Leading care provider Balhousie Care Group, which is celebrating its 30th year in business, has launched a prize giveaway as a thank you to staff.

The Great Balhousie Birthday Giveaway sees names drawn randomly throughout the year from Balhousie’s 1400+ staff across 26 care facilities.

Prizes will include hampers of goodies, annual passes to visitor attractions, restaurant and retail vouchers, tickets to events and more. The first prize – a food and wine bundle with food donated by Morrison’s supermarket in Perth – was won by Shaun Dodds, a kitchen porter with Balhousie St Ronan’s care home in Dundee.

Jill Kerr, Group Chief Executive Officer at Balhousie Care Group, said: “We know the challenges working in social care can bring, as well as the rewards. We call our staff Everyday Heroes and it is particularly apt as we continue to navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. They continue to give their all and to step up to work extra shifts. That’s why we decided to use Balhousie’s 30th birthday year as a reason to give back to our very deserving staff. A big thanks must go out to the companies who have donated to our giveaway.”
